This was a major challenge……. My mums colleague had seen some pictures of my previous cakes and decided she would like me to make a cake for a daughters upcoming birthday. Her daughter is a circus silks performer and she wanted a model of her daughter posing on her silks to sit on top of the cake. I was excited to take on this challenge but also nervous as I’ve never made a fully limbed person to go on a cake let alone one that was posing on a circus silk! This was a 12″ vanilla madeira sandwiched with raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream covered with yellow fondant and decorated with red and blue stripes and sashes for a circus tent effect. Personalised with a special birthday message.
They loved the cake so I am really happy now!!!!
Well this is how it turned out…..
